Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney rode into office in 1984 with the largest majority government in Canadian history. Serving as Canada’s top political figure until 1993, he was voted the most admired Canadian prime minister in a 2009 The Hill Times poll.
From humble beginnings, Mulroney, 73, trained as a lawyer and rose to become the leader of his country. Last week, he was in Washington to be inducted as a lifelong member of the prestigious Horatio Alger Association. This organization recognizes accomplished individuals who have overcome adversity and humble beginnings through hard work, perseverance and integrity to achieve personal and professional success.
In an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, the former prime minister picked his words carefully as he spoke of Ronald Reagan, America’s mistakes dealing with the Keystone pipeline issue, and what makes a real leader in a tough political climate.
